6:18am
chance they may take the senate as well. it would be a republican driven congress and many times when we look at this change this is beneficial for the markets for the very reason that if everything slows down, meaning the passing of big bills and big spending and some of the regulatory issues, if that gridlock occurs, the fight between the two, that could be been firm for the markets but it doesn't want so much gridlock that it stops some o beneficial things. one of the biggest issues we're looking at is taxes. we have the bush tax cuts expiring next year. we'll be looking for improvement, tax cuts for another year or those under $25o,000 some benefits there. we need some participation in congress. >> if the republicans gain control, after november and through the end of the year we
6:19am
still have a lame duck session so it doesn't change things until next year. post elections we still have the same makeup for the tax issue prior to the end of the year. we will keep a close eye on the language coming out of the administration because if taxes increase that would be negative for the markets. >> wait until the e lection. >> same thing i have looked at since april, it will be choppy. we have some optimism and some is preelection optimism but large multinational dividend paying stocks. have some income so you have some improvement. >> megan. >> thanks so much jamie. >> 6:19. if your student is going to college, searching for internships or looking for a job, what should they wear?
